BK&E Railroad

The BK & E Railroad is located in Ellis Kansas at the Ellis Railroad Museum. We found this operation unexpectedly as we were on the return leg of the Rails Across America 2 page. Ellis Kansas is located on Interstate 70 about 250 miles west of Kansas City. Also located on the grounds of this park train is UP Caboose #25549 and the former Ellis Depot. We never were able to find out what BK&E stands for, but a good guess on the K is Kansas and the E is Ellis. Photos of the caboose are located on the caboose index page of this website. all photos taken by the Webmaster 11/17/04.
